We recently sailed on the Carnival Glory and had the best time. This was the first time we had cruised with Carnival and was very impressed and pleased with the service, activities, and food. The best part was that we traveled this year with our 4 yr old and Camp Carnival was the GREATEST!!! This camp allowed my husband and I to enjoy a vacation together and allowed our 4yr old to enjoy his vacation with us and he got to meet new friends. The Camp had great activities for the children and the Counselors were very professional and good with the children. My son did not want to leave the Camp. We cruised the Eastern Carribbean to Nassau, Bahamas, St Thomas and St Maarten. We took our son off the ship in St Thomas however we ended up taking him back to the ship after an hour because he kept talking about missing Camp Carnival. We attempt to take him off the ship in St Maarten but he refused and stated he was staying at Camp Carnival to eat lunch with is friends and play afterwards. The Camp was open until 10pm however you could pay small fee($6 per hour) from 10pm to 3am and your child could stay. This was great because it allowed us as a couple to enjoy the disco, comedy shows or just hanging out at the pool area. My son also loved the slide that was on the ship. The ship also had a great gym/spa/track outside on upper deck. Booking with BJ's was awesome because the pricing was just right and by booking with them we got an onboard credit and a BJ's gift card upon returning from our trip. We would definitely book with BJ's again and definitely cruise with Carnival again.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The dining and food was the best. We really enjoyed the deli on board. The only problem we had was that we booked early dinner and was given late dinner which meant that our 4yr old never got to eat dinner with us in the main dining area.

We loved the shows and especially loved the Ship Director-Butch which kept everyone informed on what was going on and happening on the ship. The Adult comedy show was the greatest. My side is still hurting.

Children's Programs

We can not say enough about Camp Carnival. It was the greatest. It allowed us to have our own vacation and our 4 yr old to have his own vacation. He got to meet some great Counselors from around the world and great new friends. The Counselors were very professional and great with the children.

The ship size , layout and condition of the ship was great. The deocr was outstanding throughout the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The stateroom was great. We had an outside stateroom which had enough room. We had King size bed and our son had a pull out sofa that turned into a twin size bed for him. He just loved his bed especially since it was very close to us. The pillows and mattress was VERY VERY comfortable and soft. We slept really well.

The shopping was great and don't forget to take your beach wear. You can take a water taxi to the town and go shopping and then afterwards you can enjoy the sandy beach of relaxation. Along the beach is resturants and shops also. The beer/drink prices were great so if you are a drinker, you can get in some cheaper drinking before getting back on the ship. You also are able to rent-beach chairs, umbrella, wave runners etc. to enjoy on the beach.
Don't Miss: Don't miss the beach time.

The inside shopping was great however you got to walk or take a cab into town. It has a K-mart so you can stock up on snacks or anything you may need for the rest of the crusie since one more stop then at Sea until you return home.

Pros: We loved the Camp Carnival that was offered. We took our 4yr old with us and he had the time of his life. It was like TWO vacations in one. We had ours and he had his own. He got to meet new friends. The Counselors were very professional and GREAT with the kids.

Cons: Only problem we had was that we requested early dinner and was given late. It was not that bad because as a couple we got to eat together but our 4yr old was not able to go to dinner with us but only once and it was just too late for him.

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!
